Vermeil Zinfandel Luvisi " " Vineyard 2009

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The wine, from this old vineyard, contains a good chunk of Petite Sirah, which adds body and tannins to the Zinfandel. It’s a delicious wine, wonderfully drinkable, with deep, complex blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate, licorice, raisin, black pepper and sandalwood flavors that finish long and spicy.

Opaque ruby. Potent aromas of dark berry preserves, cola, violet and licorice, with a subtle floral note that gains strength with air. Lush and creamy in texture, offering deep blackberry and cherry compote flavors that show a suave blend of richness and energy. Becomes spicier with air and finishes long and sappy with lingering sweetness. While this wine has the depth to age it’s pretty appealing right now, if rather unevolved.

With a more sophisticated style, the Vermeil Zin is a wine that appeals to Left Bank Bordeaux drinkers. Firm tannins and elegant spices are the dominant features, but the black currant and plum notes add softness on the finish.

The 1908 Block Zinfandel has bright, succulent fruit flavors that are just like biting into a juicy blackberry; some peppery spice and evident tannins balance the structure of the wine; a Napa Valley beauty that’s mouth-filling, intense and delicious.
